    The dog that wil get lost will not hear the fere of the owner ..
    A coach that will not hear the voice of the people how wil he hear the voice of god .not to talk of goddesses.. a weak defence can’t stand the like of Cote de voir not to talk of equitorial guinea. Before meeting Egypt Cameroon or Senegal..
    Even ekong and balogun at the back will create an hopeful last men

    Watched the match . Desser was a complete goal poacher , he scored two goals that were declared offside but the manner he coolly placed the goals showed he is the best one on one goal scorer in Nigeria. His contribution in Eagles is quite different from others.

      @Respect Is Reciprocal, I agree with you on this.

      “The manner he coolly placed the goals showed he is the best one on one goal scorer in Nigeria.”

      You absolutely on point. You see, gentleman, Dessers is a goal machine. His pace, goal scoring ability, and vision on the field will be a valuable asset to the Super Eagles. Providing depth and skill in crucial attacking areas. Indeed, Kolawole is a complete striker.

      No doubt, he is one of the best Nigerian strikers we have currently.

      Dessers is the most accurate, and sharp shooter in front of the goal we have. I repeat, nobody can deny this. Am I lying ba? This is viable and visible to everyone. Hmm. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Omo9ja 6 months ago

    If I’m talking about Dessers, they will say that is Kolawole is the only player we have, but how wouldn’t I talk about him kę?

    This guy is too hot at the moment. He is the man of the moment, and nobody can deny him that.

    If it wasn’t the two goals he scored was offside, that was fantabulous goals.

    He set up the first goal also. I am proud of you, Dessers. You deserve my accolade.

    The more he plays, the more he performs. This is so good for Nigeria. Keep it up, Dessers. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Hahaha….. Young man @ Omo nijja. If I can remember correctly, I and Sean were about the first that started sounding out Dessers for SE on this forum. Even Dr Drey might be able to attest to this, after he argued out qualitatively why Dessers should not be invited then against my view.
    Several times I have gone ahead to point out Dessers as next after Osimene when it comes to that needed target man. But all I want to you young man to do is PLEASE ALLOW THE COACH DO HIS JOB SO WE CAN CONFIDENTLY CRUCIFY OR PRAISE HIM WHEN HE FAILS OR SUCCEEED RESPECTIVELY.
    The same you shouted to high heavens about Okoye throwing all sort of jibes at Akpeyi only for you to disappear after one Okoye howler. We know your kerewe kerewa kind of cry here. It just seems that name KOLAWOLE EXCITES you more than Dessers skills set.
    Mind you, if I was the coach, Dessers will be going but I always prefer supporting who ever the gaffer picks. That is the way to go young man. Ire ooo. Lolzz

      I like the way you laughed it out, lolz. This is quite funny, ahahahah. Nigerians have started again, lol. Deep down inside you, you know the truth kę. How many years have I been advocating for Dessers inclusion now? When Nigerians call Cyriel Kolawole Dessers, ỌMỌ9JA’s name will ring bell in their minds. Hmm. That alone is a huge achievement for me, my dear Mercy.

      I don’t scout for just any how player or a goalie. I would rather pick one player and call the attentions of the Nigeria Football Federation and the Super Eagles gaffer to keep monitoring the player.

      To God be the glory. I can’t do all this by myself. You can see the result of my work now.

      I give thanks to God for Dessers on his behalf. I never gave up on Dessers, which CSN and my colleagues on here can testify to it.

      How come now that it is almost guaranteed that Dessers will make it to his first tournament with Nigeria national team you are now claiming this Mercy? Lol. Ah, my Naija people, I hail you ooo.

      That said, I have scouting so many players and goalies for Nigeria, and I am still scouting for Super Eagles. Okoye is a good keeper, but he is not there yet to be a world-class goalie.

      He needs some time to grow, and this is why I stopped mentioning his name. He would be a better keeper in the future for Nigeria, but not now. He has potential only if he cools himself down and is more focused.

      However, Akpeyi was a fantastic goalkeeper at his club but not at the national team during his time. That should tell you that club football is quite different from national team football. I did not insult or hate Akpeyi.

      Just like Uzoho, the goalkeeper trainer should be blamed for what we are seeing in the goalkeeping department in the Super Eagles. The coach did not create competitions in that department.

      “It just seems that name KOLAWOLE EXCITES you more than Dessers skills set.”

      Really? What else do you want from a striker like Dessers? Simply put, you don’t like Kolawole, period.

      Can you name a striker that we can compare to Dessers in the Super Eagles at the moment? Just name one, please.

      Do you think it is easy to hear or read about a player every year, days, and months on every sports site? Just type Cyriel Dessers Kolawole on Google to confirm that I am not lying to you.

      Let’s put sentiments aside and rally round behind Dessers because he has what it takes to be one of the best strikers Nigeria ever has. You are too funny “MERCY”. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

      • Omo9ja 6 months ago

        Sorry, I meant to say “Glory,” not “Mercy.” You, former Oga Rohr followers, I hail you all ooo. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

      • Hmmm… Omo Naija the Scouter, I heard Fanendo Adi, Jalil Anibaba, Tolu Arokodare  etc that you scouted for are now playing for Juventus now.
        What about those guys without profile from Ajegunle?
        Keep deceiving your self. I missed Osigwe playing for FC Lugano too. I don’t even know where Alampasu plays his trade now. Your best Goalies back then. May be you should start your scoutings for Home based Eagles. We really need to win WAFU CUP and CHAN tournaments this time . It’s like Super Eagles scouting job is too big for you.

      Apologies….I have NEVER argued against the invitation of Desser to the SE….NEVER

      Since he burst unto the scene at Heracles Armelo 3 or 4 seasons ago, the guy has always caught my fancy and I’ve always rated him above every other striker in the SE except Osimhen.

      Even while he was at Genk, despite Onuachu always scoring his wait and get goals as always….I still pushed for Dessers who was always on the bench at Genk to be invited ahead of Paul.

      The argument and grouse against me then was that I always push for bench warmers. And my point is always that Class is permanent. The boy moved to Feyenoord and emerged top scorer in the maiden Conference league. Like ive always said, A proven striker can be playing in the sands of Ajegunle, but once Called upon will still show his class. When a player is proven, he is proven.
